What's everyone's opinion on Iron Studio's work (consistency in quality and paint apps...some companies show a prototype that has a vastly superior paint app only to sell production pieces that are grossly different)? With the prices rocketing upwards for statues, I'm just about ready to call it quits. Still don't have a Wolvie in my collection, though and I'm torn between this one and the premium format that's still not painted yet (standing over a sentinel's hand).

I own Iron Studios 1/4 Captain America and Iron Man statues from Age of Ultron Movie and their QC is top notch. I also own their 1/6 scale Superman vs Doomsday and it also has great QC.

I haven't heard anything bad about their 1/4 Captain America Civil War Statues, from the pictures they look pretty awesome.

The only bad thing I've heard about Iron Studios was the Spider-Man Comic statue which had some really bad QC due to a really bad factory but Iron Studios had them redone and replaced anyone's statue that had bad QC.

If I was to list the companies with the best quality control based on my own experience, it would be:

1) XM Studios
2) PrototypeZ
3) Prime 1
4) Iron Studios
5) Tweeterhead
6) Koto
7) Gaming Heads
8) Sideshow

Nice action pose, but face on both mask portraits are too fat, especially the modern head.

I agree that the portraits could be better but I really like the figure. The base, one the other hand, is awful.

Not only is it big and distracting but it makes no sense for this version of the character.

I can't imagine what they were thinking with this. Also it could just be the pics but his biceps are so big it looks a little weird to me.

Don't know if was announced already, but it's up for Pre order along with the Weapon X now at SS. I think the actual Wolverine looks amazing, specially that lunging pose, but I dont care for the heads and MUCH LESS the base.

I agree with the majority on this. I think wolverine himself is sweet but the base ruins it for me plus I already have XM Wolverine so I don't really need this. It's very similar pose wise. Sideshows new wolverine has potential. I hope it's the astonishing outfit

Thanks for the feedback! Most negative feedback about this piece seems to be directed at the base; however, I have to admit, a tonne of work went into it's production and personally I think it works great with Wolvie (better as Weapon X but I like the "yellow spandex" better )!

At $600, if they pull off QC that's better than Sideshow, it's a great deal as many companies are now pushing $700 plus for more complex 1/4 pieces. My collection will probably have a 1/4 Wolvie afterall!

Thanks again
